Have you ever considered building your own electronic tool kit, but decided it was too expensive or too complicated? That presumption couldn't be further from the truth.

As with any other type of purchase, you most likely have some type of budget in mind. Just a little tip here; Don't let your budget stop you from buying quality tools, your investment now could save you hundreds of dollars in the future by replacing poor quality tools.

The first thing to consider is how you are going to store your tools. Will you be using your tools on the road or working in a service shop-like environment?
My personal recommendation is to have a toolbox or tool bag to store your tools. It is a great way to protect and organize your investment. There are many tool bag options, from rolling briefcases, foam-filled briefcases and aluminum briefcases. Your personal circumstance will guarantee which toolbox you should choose.

Now to the most important part of your purchase, what tools to buy? This will also be determined by several factors that you should seriously consider before making your final decision.

1) Will you need portability for your power tools and electronic test equipment? Then you will want to buy items that can run on rechargeable batteries. Some examples of this are a good quality handheld oscilloscope or a rechargeable soldering iron.

2) Will you repair mechanical equipment, electronic equipment, or both? Electronic equipment may require tools like special Torx screwdrivers to remove fasteners used to prevent end users from accessing internal components. You may also need special screwdrivers that are rated for high voltage work. Consider carefully what your job will entail when choosing tools.

3) Then of course there are specialized fields of Electronics. Telecommunications, wiring, home theater installation, computer repair, and many others. Each of these areas requires special training and special tools. Of course, there are tools that are still common to all these different fields of electronics.

You should also look for tools that offer a warranty or full replacement for faulty tools. Manufacturers generally do NOT offer a lifetime warranty on electronic test equipment. The warranty offered on most test equipment is generally for a period of 1 year and replacement or repair of equipment is left to the discretion of the manufacturer. On the other hand, tools such as wrenches, screwdrivers, hammers and other types of tools will offer a lifetime guarantee for these types of tools. It is best to inquire about warranties before making any purchase.

Creating your own electronic toolkit is a great way to put together exactly the tools and testing equipment that you will need for your particular field of electronics. You may also consider purchasing a toolkit and choosing your specific tools or test equipment to add to that toolkit as well.
